Wm. V. Hurdy loved the islands
in general and one of the daugh
ters i n particular, but thought
that he would wait until the month
of roses when school closes, before
changing the teacher's name.
The many friends of Miss Lil
lian K. Akina, Waimea school,
valued first grade teacher, would
doubtless have preferred to give
her a big sendj-off from the church
of which her father is pastor; but
the couple, chose a quiet family
wedding at the parsonage at the
beginning of the Enster vacation.
The house was beautifully dec
orated with flowers, ferns a n d
palms and the quests sat down to
a genuine wedding breakfast. The
shower1 (of rice) at theii depar
ture was not severe enough to in
terfere with their taking to the
woods for a week's honeymoon
The good wishes of a . host of
friends follow this couple who will
shortly return and set up house
keeping in Wainiea.
Wm. Werner, deputy sheriff of

for his re-instatenient was present
ed to the sheriff, signed by 125
voters ot the Hanalei precinct.
The special Service Sunday
morning at the L i h u e Union
Church was an uncommonly inter
esting and enjoyable occasion The
church never looked better, thanks
to kind friends who contributed
flowers generously, and other kind
friends who arranged them artis
tically. The music for the occa
sion was also never better, the
choir doing themselves much cred
it, and being very happily second
ed by a delicate solo by Miss Mills
Mr". Lydgate in the course of the
service made referrence in sympa
thetic and appreciative terms to
the death of Rev. Wm. B Olsen,
whose demise will be a great loss
to the Hawaiian people as well as
the Territory in general.

occasions in a great while in
cluding people from Lihue to Ke
kaha. For the dance a special floor had
been constructed on the makai
lawn, the area being screened with
tropic plants and illuminated with
pretty Japanese lanterns. The
hall was also decorated in the same
lavish manner; and from the out
side the whole scene formed a
most beautitul combination.
The Waimea Orchestra supplied
music for the dancing, and its
work was most skillful and pleas
ing. Near the midnight hour re
freshments were passed around by
daintily garbed Japanese maidens.
All present voted the affair a
most successful one.
